romney's healthcare provider. on and on. so when i say, and yet for all of these things that he has done, he has copied all of these big ideas from republicans. again, going all the way back and then to nixon and yet their response is, he is just a fascist, a socialist. really? what were nixon and reagan and george w. bush for god's sake? they completely shunned their own. they ignored their own history >> bill: they don't recognize their own ideas. right? when they are staring them in the face. >> i think most people can recognize the republican party of today is not the republican party of 20, 30 years ago. most people who look at this independently can see that. but i think the bigger question is: is there ever going to be anything that's a wake-up call for them? what would the wake-up call be that they say, okay. we really need to change here? >> i think the wake-up call if you delve into these poll numbers from these election night numbers we were just talking about this, you know, off there, they lost the hispanic vote by 44 points. they only lost it by 36 in 2008 and on and on. so

president did pretty well, when you look at healthcare reform. every president for the last hundred years has tried it. barack obama did it. he ended the war in iraq. he is winding down the war in afghanistan. he brought us out of that comic hole partly through the stimulus which created what was it? over 5 million new jobs, saved the auto industry, brought this economy back. it still has a long ways to go. got the star treaty approved by the united states.s. senate and remember, he did get osama bin laden, led this country on the issue of same-sex marriage, the first president to do so. pardon me, and the point is, two great women to the supreme court. now, looking ahead, that's the first question. what do you think about that first term? 866-55 press. are you yesterday? second, what do you want to see in the second term? i tell you what we are already seeing: a lot more backbone on the part of president obama. it is worken, proven by the fact that the republicans in the house caved over the weekend on the debt ceiling and said, all right. they will extend it for only three months,
